The Harmonic Way – Living in Harmony & Balance
By Anna Beaumont
To be in harmony is to be in a state of agreement, of accord. It is the medium connecting and harmonizing two people together. When we are in a state of true harmony we have agreed to invite the presence of a third party. “Wherever two or more are gathered in my name, there am I in the middle of them.”
Music, harmony, rhythm & tone is this medium and has the natural ability to teach us the way back home to our true nature. It is the remembrance of these laws that reflect the order of nature and right thinking that is a trusted guide on this life journey away from a life of chaos and disharmony towards (two-forward) a life of harmony. The laws of music, harmony & rhythm cannot forget their true nature and therefore we must use them to re-learn again what is natural inside of us.
For relationships to become harmonious instead of disharmonious and at least to become aware of all states. To learn the rhythm and flow of life that exists in music so that we may bring this knowing to our lives and teach other the Harmonic Way. Harmony in life is found in relationships between two people as well as in music. The notes that are spoken between them dance in the music of either harmony or disharmony.
The two notes together, or the two people together, create two notes that are either; harmonious, chaotic, separate, dissonant, or detached. This reflects through the conversation and body language in the voice as; tone, rhythm & pitch. To study the laws of harmony is invaluable in expanding our awareness to know when we are being harmonious or disharmonious, rhythmic or going against rhythm, being in tune or out of tune in our relationships. The relationship that is reflected outside of ourselves with another person exists inside of us.
Our inner harmonious or disharmonious relationship that we have accrued through the years in the form of beliefs and defenses is reflected in the outer relationships and brings a certain musicality that we express consciously or unconsciously.
The singing voice is a reflection from this inner connection. It acts as a barometer to connect us moment by moment to our body’s emotionally intelligent communication system; we change like the weather, and our singing voice is the intelligent measurement of this change.
To be in a harmonious relationship we must connect to our inner voice. Freeing the singing voice is a way of cultivating this inner wisdom so that when we relate we are aware of our inner harmony or lack thereof.
The intelligence of sound, singing and music will be the most commonly used modality for healing in the future. It contains the wholeness, harmony and balance of life. To experience our wholeness is to experience our singing voice, our breath, and all the life that is living and vibrating within us, around and through us.
